    The Silent Soldier
    By G.A.Codling

    A soldier crawls along a forest floor
    A match grade barrel to do his chore
    Blending with the woodland scene
    He leaves no trace of where he's been

    A single task occupies his mind
    To the outside world he is blind
    One single task, one single goal
    Only his mission occupies his soul

    He moves into the open grass
    The enemy patrol makes a searching pass
    although they look, they can not see
    the man moving out from a distant tree

    One hour, two , three then four
    He only moves a few feet more
    Zero hour is getting near
    He knows his target will soon appear

    A single man he has been sent to kill
    and on his hands this man's blood will spill
    The moment is now, the target's in site
    Taking up the first pressure the shoot feels right

    One ounce more on the trigger sear
    The bullet races away like a high speed spear
    It races throw the air with a thunderous crack
    There's a fountain of blood as it exits the man's back

    The silence is deafening theirs not a single sound
    as the shooter removes the case of the single spent round
    His task now done he fades back in to the wood
    His only trace is a body wear a man once stood.


    • The quickest way to change a persons thoughts about a subject, is a 130gr boattale. (Brian Davis 75th Ranger Sniper)
    • invisible souls..........leave .308 holes. (USMC)

    • If the attack is going perfectly, it might be an ambush
    • there is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it , never care for anything else thereafter. -Ernest Hemingway
    • You will do something stupid everyday of your life. if you cannot find something stupid to do on your own, you will be ordered to do something stupid.
    • I was what others did not want to be.I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal
      loneliness...should I fail. I have seen the face of terror; felt the
      stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love.I have cried, pained, and hoped... but most of all, I have lived in times others would say were best forgotten. at least someday, I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was...a soldier.
    • Freedom is never so dear until you almost give your life in it's
      defense.
    • While invisible I see and destroy
    • To those mourned of the black stone, and to those who grieve before it. silence makes no mistakes pain is an illusion of the senses, despair is an illusion of the mind. glorious, glorious, one keg of beer for the four of us, we're as happy as can be, my comrades and me, for we are members of the infantry!
    • A little revolution, now and then, is a healthy thing
    • Assumption is the mother of all fuck-ups
    3-18-99
    They that have the power to hurt, and will do none,
    That do not do the thing, they mostly show
    Who moving others, are themselves as stone,
    Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;
    They rightly do inherit heaven's graces,
    And husband riches from expense,
    They are lords and owners of their faces,
    Others but stewards of there excellence:
    The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
    Thought to itself, it only lives and die,
    But if that flower were based with infectious meet,
    The basest weed, out-braves his dignity;
    For sweetest things turns sourest by their deeds,
    Lilies that fester, smell far worse than weeds

    (William Shakespeare)

    Hello, it's me again, dvir caspy, I want to give you
    some quotes and will be very grateful if you will put
    my name with them.
    If I have English problems, please correct them.


    -Your friends are very important to your survival,
    they give the enemy someone else to shoot on.

    -The problem with finding the easiest way, is that the
    enemy already booby trapped it.

    -It's easy to predict professionals, the amateurs are
    the dangerous ones.

    -If you're progress is smooth and good, you're probably
    getting into an ambush.

    ===
    Yours, Dvir Caspy. (Hawk).

      I lay sweat dripping from summer heat
      Yet I wait and watch them while they eat;
      The wait is over, their meal is done.
      I watch their movement, the wind, the sun.
      Slow, steady pressure,
      I aim, I squeeze;
      Pause for a moment, a passing breeze.
      My crosshairs steady,
      My trigger cold,
      I feel the recoil and watch him fold.
      They begin to scream and open fire,
      Bodies twist in razor wire.
      The mission accomplished,
      I grab my gear.
      I'll clean my rifle in the rear.

      -anonymous Marine Scout-Sniper


      Warriors always have great debates about the merits of the weapons they
      carry. It doesn't matter though because it comes down to this-----
      Caliber, actions, ammo capacity are for naught.
      It doesn't matter what gun you brought,
      'cause it's the only gun you got.
      So when the battles going to to start,
      The solution is to shoot them first,
      and shoot them allot!
      (anonymous Dept of Justice)


      "Eagerness for combat is an asset for a soldier, dangerous for a commander, and criminal for a politician."

      • The Misty Motto War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      "It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."
